Google Lens Now Comes With 'New Tricks.' (But You Probably Won't Experience It On Your Device).

Remember Google Lens? The visual image analyzer first announced at the I/O 2017?

It has been updated with a couple of features initially revealed at the event.

The first is the ability to identify popular landmarks using your camera:
 

 
The second (cool) feature is the ability to copy contact right from a business card—this could come in handy for people like me who hate the idea of business cards.
So how does this feature work?
Simple! Just take a picture of the business card, open it in Google Photos, and select Lens, from there, Lens will let you save information on the business card as a contact.
Dope, right?
However, I’ve got some bad news, Google Lens is only available on Samsung, Huawei, LGE, Motorola, Asus, Xiaomi, Noia, ZTE, Sony and Vivo devices. So, if your manufacturer isn’t listed, you won’t be able to use Google lens right now, without rooting, but before you give me this look:

There is a big chance that the big G might roll out to other devices later. So, keep your fingers crossed.

    Eventually it will be available for all Android phones. I’m not going to buy a particular brand just to use Google Lens.
